In addition to unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund, we are grateful for your support of the following funds directed to specific areas, as outlined below.
The Lydia Spinelli Fund for Professional Development. This fund provides money for research grants, travel, and study, and pays for tuition and other costs of courses, conferences, and workshops on the latest developments in Early Childhood Education. In doing this, the fund further enhances the school’s appeal to present and future faculty and helps make it an even more exciting and stimulating place to learn.
The Paul Austin Wolfe Scholarship Fund. Spending from this endowment fund, established in 1975, named for the founder of The Brick Church School, provides financial aid for children at the school. This year 16 percent of our children are receiving financial aid.
The Faculty Fund. Funds from this permanent endowment are used to increase faculty compensation beyond what tuition can cover in order to continue to recruit and retain talented teachers.
